Sunday lunch at the Fox is very different and innovative. Your meal is served on miniature picnic tables. It consists of a great selection of savoury and sweet food.

Had heard a lot about the Fox and was certainly not disappointed, atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. The Fox were very accommodating as we did not eat shell fish and everything was delicious. We agreed that we would certainly visit again.

We visited The Fox bar & bistro on Monday the 18th, there were 9 adults in total. Prior to our visit I emailed The Fox to see if they could arrange afternoon teas for the Monday (as they usually don't do them on Mondays and have specific days) the lady I emailed checked this for me and said it would...

Love the new interior decor, just gone up a notch. Food good, service okay. Gets very noisey due to the lack of soft furnishings so difficult to have a conversation.

There were 3 of us and we shared the anti pasta board with meats, cheese, med veg and bread. We would... More

Heard mixed reviews so did not know what to expect. The decor is very limited and the uneven stone floor gives a great rocking to the tables! With no prior booking the only table available was a high seated table for 2. The staff were quite accommodating but seemed to be rushed off there feet, though drinks were brought prompt.... More

We had booked to come to this restaurant with our family mths in advance. We had quite a lot of dietary requirements to be catered for so we wanted to ensure that everything was ok and sorted before our arrival. We all originally wanted to come for afternoon tea but upon enquiry was told that they did not cater this... More
